I Didn’t Deny Davido Access To Imade, He Only Wanted My Body – Sophia Momodu

Sophia Momodu, Afrobeats artist Davido’s first baby mama, has refuted claims she denied the singer access to his daughter, Imade.

It should be noted that Davido recently filed a suit seeking custody of the child.

Momodu stated in a statement filed through her legal attorneys on Saturday that Davido has refused to see their daughter of his “own choice” since July 2022.

The statement further alleged that Momodu has “solely shoulderered” responsibility for their daughter for the past two years, whilst Davido publishes Imade’s images on social media to “falsely portray himself as a supportive and active father.”

The statement said, “David has not seen their daughter since 2022 by his own choice. Sophia has never denied him the opportunity to see his daughter. He has not reached out on special occasions such as her birthday or Christmas for the past two years, which has left his daughter distressed and questioning why her father has cut contact with her. Despite this, David posts images of her on social media to falsely portray himself as a supportive and active father

“Since July 2022, David has not fulfilled his financial responsibilities towards their daughter, leaving her school fees unpaid. Their daughter’s school has contacted him multiple times regarding the fees for the 2021/2022 school term and January 3023, no response. Legal counsel was sought in February 2023, resulting in David’s father, Mr. Adedeji Adeleke, eventually paying the outstanding fees. Regardless of this neglect, Sophia strongly maintains that the most important support David can provide to their daughter is presence and emotional support.”

It added, “Sophia has never denied David access to their daughter, only access to her body and intimacy, which he has taken issue with. David is in a publicly known relationship and Sophia wishes him well. She seeks to move forward in her life free from harassment and verbal abuse.”
